I’m not ready yet. Dr. Miguel Nicolelis is conducting research where he studies future anticipated motor functions in primate brains. As an action potential, electric impulse, moves along a brain cell it causes a change in a cell. That change is what causes action, whatever that action may be. Dr. Nicolelis’ study is about anticipating these action potentials, basically thinking about making a move. The primates brains are connected to computers so as they think about making a move or playing a game the move is made and the game is played on the computer screen. Future implications, creating full body “armor” for paralyzed people allowing their thoughts to help them ambulate. This guy is definitely the future. Everyone…it’s stylish to read, so get studying…be the change.
Lisa Ling hosts a new hard hitting show, “Our America,” on OWN. I just finished an episode discussing the dynamic between the Christian church and homosexuality. I was touched by how gently she handled the controversial issue and motivated to encourage understanding and individual decision making. I think everyone, Gay, Straight, or other wise should watch. Here is a LINK.
I’m so proud of our little Jessica. She’s spent most of her life in the public eye, heartache, weight gain, bad days and all. Withstanding intense scrutiny with effortless grace is so not easy. So I am always excited to report her successes. Well our little Disney chic has made the big time, her clothing line, Jessica Simpson, is expected to gross 1 Billion dollars this year. I have one of her bags, a burnt orange faux gator clutch with gold accessories, people always take note. Go Jess!!!!
Who said women don’t age well.
